Didn't I say to keep looking? Today, a friend walked up to me at church and asked if I wanted a 12" Craftsman contractor's saw with a 40 tooth carbide tip blade and spring drop wheels added, and an additional adjustable dado blade included. Free.
I jumped on it, and it's now sitting in my shop.
The picture is of a 10", but it looks just about like this one.
I got a chance to clean the gunk off the saw today... It's not a 12" after all, but a 10". But still a great saw for free.
The same guy also sold me an 18" Delta Variable Speed scroll saw for $20. It's all rusted, needs a throat plate and blade, but I see potential.
